A great little first time PDA

AdvantagesVery easy to use, doesn't crash, lots of free software available

nice for watching mpegs

Advantageslight weight

Disadvantagescrashes often

"I got this as a portable mpeg player and mp3 player. I have changed the card to a 512mb card. The battery life is excellent. I love it. It does everything I need, so much so I hardly ever use my pc! It can run the divx codec using the appropriate software. It can run ebooks with ease and can store a huge amount. With the correct software you can store whole volumes of mp3's on it so that you can listen on the bus/train/airplane. The ..." Read review
